What a beautiful night for the first campfire of session 1! All of our campers were introduced to all of the staff, we sang some silly songs, and  watched the sunset by the lake!

Pokey Totem even showed us their running man challenge and danced for everyone! Here’s the video!

Greetings from Wawayanda Session 2 2015!

 

We have been having an ABSOLUTE blast here already during Session 2 and wanted to let you all know how happy everyone has been! We have already had some epic dance offs, played Ultimate Sicko Ball, hung out with Al, celebrated a few birthdays, and took our swim tests! There is nothing better than sunshine and laughter, and other than a few short rain showers, we have had nothing but that!

 

On Sunday night, we all gathered at our favorite spot on camp, CiT Point, to celebrate the beginning of the session with our Opening Campfire. We had skits, songs, silly counselors, and even a surprise visit from a beaver who was gathering some sticks in the lake for his home! We had such a blast, bibly!

 

Monday began our first full day, complete with new specialties, new friends, and lots of new activities! We learned cheers of our Villages, which we will sing at Hoopla during lunch. Also, we all had our waterfront orientation and took the swim test! Everyone is safely in the water level of their comfortably, and swimming lessons will begin tomorrow to all campers who want to improve! Lakota Village won Gold at the Lakolympix Swim Test Event! We built shelters in the woods, did team building and trust walks, and played Geronimo with Al!

 

Today, we were in full swing, and there was so much creative programming happening! Gladiator was played in the dining hall with Outpost and the CiTs, Pokey Totem climbed the Y Tower and made candles, Susky and Forest did some aerobic workouts, and Lakota played Geronimo. We all ended the day with a camp-wide game of Ultimate Sicko Ball, one of our favorite camp games.

 

We are looking forward to the week ahead, and cannot wait to share more stories with you!

 

Peace, Love, & Wawayanda,

Lindsay

It can now be said, that all of the first Session of Wawayanda Campers are all tucked in and sleeping safely in their bunks. We had a fun, high energy opening campfire this evening, full of laughter, cheers, and lots of songs. We even made Lakota Omlettes, and Outpost Pot Roast! Here’s all of Wawayanda, doing funny faces for a panorama photo shoot.

 

We wanted to thank all of our parents for sending your campers here to camp. We are so honored and excited to spend the next 11 days (4 days for some of you) with them! We are looking forward to sharing many magical moments and stories with you throughout the summer.

 

Peace, love, and Wawayanda,

Lindsay
